    Default AA, did I overplay and miss value here

    I dont have stats but I remember at the table this villain has 40 VPIP over 50 or so hands.

    Should I be fast playing my AA or be trying to figure out what they can call me with at micros? sometimes they call with dumb stuff other times they actually have something I don't want to give cheap cards and get drawn out on but I do want to get value with my good hands ,did I over-bet the turn ? I thought villain might have held a K here but maybe he folded middle pair ? I am having difficulty trying to put villains on ranges when they play from positions like this , since it can be a wide starting range I''m not sure what his flop call implies, does he have a pair a draw or was trying to float a street to see if i give up .

    Nothing wrong with this. There are so many worse hands that are calling one, two or three streets. Just bet bet bet.

    Played perfectly.
    They can def. call you with a K, here, so you're not losing value by betting. They just didn't have a K this time.
    You can find any pattern you want to any level of precision you want, if you're prepared to ignore enough data.
